I recently posted one of these “floral clocks” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71262 but I really wasn’t satisfied with the “Flat” look of the finished fretwork (see photo 2). I remade the clock but this time I eased the edges of the fretwork with my Dremel tool and a #134 carving bit. The end result, in my opinion, is a more refined look. In fact, I think I might just make this a standard procedure with some of the more open fretwork projects I might choose in the future.
This clock is made from maple (fretwork) and oak (base and top) and is finished with three coats of high gloss lacquer. I did not line the case on this one like I did with the other one.
Well, that’s all folks!! Thanks for looking.
